Top Running Shoes for 2016

Nobody argues the many health benefits of running. As more doctors prescribe aerobic physical activity, including for treating depression, an increasing number of people pick up the sport. Businesses are also adapting.

This is why the following list is broken down in various categories from best running shoes for wide feet and under-pronators, to top rated sneakers for trail running and triathlons.

The process of designing a shoe, according to Michael Thompson, Pearl Izumi’s Global Category Manager for Footwear, starts with the runner and his or her experience. “We always ask the question: What do we want the shoe to feel like when running?  Is it a fast and light running sensation or more structured and highly cushioned one? Once we get clear on the experience we want, we then look at macro trends outside the market and how they may influence the running space now and in the future.”

The sneakers below made the list based on rankings, tests, experts and user reviews on several sites specializing in running. Some of these include RunRepeat, where the ranking is updated daily, Runner’s World and Running Shoes Guru. Extra points were given to opinions by experts who have many years of experience.
